Subaru has gone ahead and priced the enthusiast-oriented BRZ for Canada this week. The 2+2 sports car will start at $27,295 with the six-speed manual gearbox. Opting for the two-pedal transmission (but c'mon, why would you?) will up the price of entry to $28,495. This "base" trim includes goodies like a Bluetooth connection for a phone and music streaming as well as HID headlights and a navigation system with a touchscreen.
A Sport-tech Package will be on offer as well, adding fog lights, Alcantara- and leather-festooned seats and dual-zone climate control. A smart key and push-button will mean users never have to fumble around with the key and the ignition, making for quick getaways. The Sport-tech Package-equipped BRZ will run $29,295 plus the requisite fees and taxes with the stick and $30,495 for the slushbox.
No stand-alone options were revealed at this time, but Subaru did promise the car will be at dealerships this June.
In contrast, the BRZ's twin, the Scion FR-S, will be priced from $25,990, here in the Great White North, so the Subaru does command a $1,305 premium. It's not yet clear what, if anything, buyers will get for the extra loonies, however.
